I came across CAS-ual Fridays Challenge (CFC) blog through another blog that I read online. The blog focuses on a weekly challenge for clean and simple card, uncluttered with lots of open white space and one clear focal point.
Can’t remember which blog I read it from but I got interested because of the opportunity for readers to play along. There’s a new theme every week and challengers will interpret them the way they want it, clean and simple. I being a newbie would love to take part on this call.
There are a ‘lot’ of participants every week and getting the top spot may take a little bit of luck. I think though that even if I don’t win, the fact that I joined in to improve myself is already gratifying. Don’t you love to do something that makes you feel happy after doing them?
I’m often asked how I am able to do crafts or sewing with all the busy schedule we have every day. Well I say, that’s something that I really love doing and if you want to do something that you enjoy, you’ll find time to do it even if you too occupied for the day.
So on to the challenge, CFC67: Create a Clean and Simple project that features banners or flags I used a scallop punch, fold the punched paper into half then I get a scalloped shape banner. I just snip off the extra ridge of folded scallop to have a cleaner cut of the banner. Also used an inch circle punch for the half circle shape, then used twine to hang them. It’s very straight forward approach to the challenge. There are some little bits of embellishment I put on top of my banners. Sentiment stamp from Hero Arts.
I have a tin box where I keep random piece of paper, die cuts and other whatnot from previous projects that are kept- to-use- later.
Until the next clean and simple card challenge.
